Mitigating the risk of cross-contamination

The medical industry has extremely high safety and hygiene standards. As such, medical devices must be autoclaved to prevent risk of cross contamination after contact with the human body. This creates a need for using components in medical devices made from specialty glass, ceramics, and metal that can withstand the harsh sterilization process.
